  Agree with that part

I think I started this. I was talking about the whether being on the water is safe based on information from the paddler here and in an earlier thread where she seemed to say that at this point in time she had not worked on rescues. Maybe the not swimming thing was in there too - in any case it isn't new information that basic water survival skills may need some work.

What you are talking about is more about whether access to the water is safe, since land is where you are most likely to run into unpleasant two-legged wildlife. That is, I agree, an issue that is more of a problem for women than men. But then again, the same rules apply at boat launches or in remote places in the woods as in the most urban environment. If a female is alone and crosses paths with bad actors with no one around, it can go bad very fast.
